these rumors on the street. >>steve: and repeating them on that detroit radio station. bill o'reilly booked her last night. it was fiery. watch. >> chicago police, as you well know, are not gunning down black children. you know that; right? >> well, certainly they are not, bill. but based upon the history of african-americans in this country and based upon the fact that 70% of the murders in chicago are unsolved, 70% are unsolved, people are wondering what the heck is going on. certainly monique davis, who is a good friend to the police, who supports the police, i believe they're our first responder and i respect that, but i have the right as a legislator to repeat what my community says to me. >> not if it's irresponsible you don't. i hear a lot of *eurp -- irresponsible stuff. >> i don't think it is irresponsible. >> for chicago police to be accused of gunning down children? you don't think it'sish responsible. >> i don't think they said that. i said there was some suspicion -- >> that's irresponsible without any evidence. >>steve: we all hear crazy stuff. when you're in a position of power a
being good for the communities that is the plants that depend on carmakers, detroit. what does it mean to detroit? >> this is tough, tough, tough for detroit. the manufacturing jobs in detroit have disappeared. back in the 50's 300,000 manufacturing jobs. last year, 27,000 jobs. those jobs have dispersed all over the united states and some are replaced by computers. the jobs are not coming back. detroit used to have a population of 1.85 million people. now they barely hit 700,000. this is a city that has been in decline for 60 years. tough times. >> heather: will the trend continue in 2014? for car sals, in general. >> guest: car sales can remain a recovery story because of pent up demand and the very old cars on the road. i don't thing we will suddenly see 25 million cars being sold. >> heather: not good news know detroit. 300,000 manufacturing jobs and down to 27,000. we appreciate you joining us. do you remember your first car in mine was a 64corvair. >> gregg: i had a mercury colony park used. it was wasn't a model t. >> the fight for the soul of the republican party with new jerse
make of this? worried about the road ahead, auto critic with the detroit free press joining us from michigan, good to see you. i did not intend to make a car related pun about driving. a lot of this is in a pickup trucks and larger vehicles. are you worried these automakers are making the same a stake they did in the 90s? it blew up in their face. >> not really. the increase in pickup trucks is due to a lot of businesses stocking up again because they think the economy is getting better and many as you thes we see our smaller than the vehicles that existed in 90s and more fuel efficient. the problem is when car and suv sales get out of whack and you are making your money on huge vehicles and losing money on cars that doesn't seem to be the case. the ford fiesta is up 90% in july versus last year which was a stunning number. dagen: we should really celebrate these automakers and rejoice in effect these sales are so good and the quality of these vehicles is so good. you get in any small american sedan these days and even in many cases it is superior to what you would buy in japan or f
york city like detroit. we're not detroit. but with actions like this and with actions like the city council where they just recently passed a law that says individuals can actually sue policemen individually, not corporately, it's really unfortunate. >> gretchen: it's interesting to see when you have the police commissioner, ray kelly and the mayor agreeing so strongly on this particular issue, 'cause they don't agree on everything, to see them come out and be so upset about this must say something about the way in which they've been conducting business for the last decade. i just want you to look at the stats. here is new york city crime stats. 2012-2013, murder down 27.5%. murder down, shooting incidents down, 28.6%. so joe, how do you expect that to change when officers can no longer stop and frisk? >> well, officers can still stop and frisk, but they're going to be handcuffed in how they do it. the judge basically thinks and without any credible evidence that police officers are stopping people for -- without having any suspicious activity, when in fact, that's been not proven.
who came to detroit in 2009. this is more -- is more general. i think if anything's changed it's that in the aftermath of the attack on our facility in benghazi and the deaths there of four americans and the continuing ha la ba lu from congress about embassy safety, people just want to err on the side of taking extra precautions. they don't have the same kind of specificity here they've had in other threats. what they have is significant personalities being involved in the threat stream and i think that's why they take it seriously. >> we are living in a post-benghazi world and benghazi drives so much of this. >> exactly. so richard haas, talk a little bit about -- what's the president's for closing -- precedence for closing 22 embassies and this al qaeda resurgence. >> let me start with the latter. people are focusing on the u.s. reaction which i think is appropriate. the bigger story this is the new normal. this is now a middle east where you no longer have countries that are essentially controlled by their governments. it's been the case in pakistan for some time, which is w
his weight set and just lifts weights. >> do it alone. >> get out of our way. >> detroit free press, one of the largest -- >> did you see that. >> publicly owned muse seems may be the next victim of detroit's bankruptcy filing. christies will appraise the value of all city-owned items at the detroit institute of art. this is sad. >> it is. >> featuring works from van gogh and deyeahgo rivera. the request came from creditors owed $18 billion. >> the city manager said of detroit, the city manager said they're lazy, stupid -- >> there's a lot of people now accusing everybody and trying to get in the way of the bankruptcy filing. >> the "usa today," last year, 1.35 million kids went to the e for sports-related injuries. a survey says that equates to a hospital visit every 25 seconds. the report estimates those injuries caused more than $900 million last year. >> from our parade of papers "seattle times" prolonged use of high blood pressure medication may lead to an increase risk for breast cancer for older women. in a survey of 2700 women, the rate of breast cancer doubled among those w
saying bin laden is dead and detroit is alive. but the fact is you have had to walk that back because there is a threat. apparently serious enough to close all of these embassies. and more broadly, i think you are seeing the collapse of a lot of the progressive doctrine that has gone into obama's foreign policy this notion that beginning even before obama took office in berlin that you could go and apologize for america. blow kisses at europe, then, you know, outstretch your hand to iran and now you go to cairo, apologize for america. apologize for a cia operation that took place nearly a decade before obama was gone. and end wars. and that that would somehow make these threats go away. it just hadn't happened. obama still can't name the threat we face. saying it's just extremism. i know someone who calls himself extreme yoga instructor. put her in guantanamo and make the enemy safer. the enemy in this regard is islamism. we are doing just about nothing to fight that. >> laura: christian, i will take issue with something you said though because while you are right, i think on the lang
at the states and cities that are taxing people highly like detroit, and you see what eventually happens to them. >> pat, why don't we put a check box on the tax return, and everybody that wants to pay more can pay more? i'm all in favor of free choice. >> you've got a very good point. i really believe that people ought to say, look -- have a surtax for some of the programs our liberal friends support, and some can say, look, this is optional. you can choose to pay or not to pay, and check it off and see which ones do it. every time they've had something like that, about 1% of the folks check it off and pay extra. >> is that fair, ebony? >> i don't think that serves any real purpose, gentlemen. i think ultimately if we want our tax base to be supportive of upward mobility, and that's certainly, i think, the point there, then we need to be collective in that process. >> give me a percentage. out of every dollar that somebody makes in america, regardless of what their income is, what is the maximum somebody should have to pay pto the government? what should they be allowed to keep? for example, i
